SooKyeong spots another nice duet – ‘If You Cannot’ by SS501 JungMin and JiSun
The solo song off SS501 upcoming collection album by member Jung Min featuring ex-Loveholic member JiSun. I think I’ve listened to it for more than 20 times today.
I don’t understand why some Kpoppers are complaining about JiSun singing more than JungMin, but the song is just amazing.

Singer Lee Hyori has recently become the judge and the core committee audition show ‘Mnet SuperStar K’ taking place on 26th and 27th June in CoEx together with other veteran singers like Lee Seung Chul, In SoonI, Yoon Jong Shin etc.

She explained, “Being kind will be one big obstacle to you as a singer. You will need to be able to build up the charisma on stage and your strong will to win. Even if you sing well, if you are not ambitious, you will not seemed like you have capabilities on stage. You may even need to be a little imprudent. Try to scold everyone from your heart for one month.” giving a little advice on that.
She continued, “To start with, trying to curse (scold) these judges sitting right in front of you. Tell yourself ‘I’m the best’.” She had taught her know-how to be able to be one of Korea’s sexy top stars to the participants at the audition without holding back.
Not only so, she revealed at the judging, “I don’t like the pretty boy style”. She revealed, “Recently even though there is much popularity with this pretty boy thing, I prefer boys with individuality and more boyish.” She would say things like “That’s my style” to male participants who are further away even with the pretty boys standing nearer to her.
Lee Seung Chul who is also one of the judges, “I am really surprised by the type of guys that Lee Hyori likes.”
‘SuperStar K’ will start airing on Mnet from 24th July.
